Talented artist Yoon-ju is gathering material from a junkyard for her graduate exhibition when she first glimpses Ji-soo. Perhaps not the most romantic place to meet, but there’s something about Ji-soo that intrigues her. When they next bump into each other, Yoon-ju is powerless to resist the confident charms of the younger woman. In love for the first time and thrilled by the feeling, Yoon-ju begins to neglect her artwork. But her lover is holding something back from their relationship and that first rush of infatuation really begins to fade when Yoon-ju realises that Ji-soo’s life away from the city isn’t as free as she imagined. A majestic, slow-burning debut by Hyun-ju Lee, Our Love Story perfectly captures the nuances of a love affair. Told from the perspective of the taciturn Yoon-ju, it’s a beautifully understated performance by Sang-hee Lee.
